A DESIGN THAT IS BOTH REFINED AND CONTEMPORARY, FEATURING A WEALTH OF REFERENCES TO THE ALPINE EAGLE AND ITS BIOTOPE. WHEN NATURE IS YOUR MUSE, THE RESULTS CAN BE NOTHING LESS THAN ICONIC.
Embellished with a sunburst motif, the galvanic blue or grey brass dial inspired by the iris of an eagle, reminds us that Nature is the most gifted of all muses.
With its counterweight shaped like an eagle’s feather, the rhodium-plated second hand takes the form of an arrow.
The gently tapered Alpine Eagle bracelet comprises a single ingot-shaped link, topped by a raised central cap reminiscent of its mountain biotope. Crafted in Chopard Lucent Steel A223, it is a feat of both technical execution and style.
Evoking a spirit of adventure, the crown is engraved with a compass rose, an instrument that has helped adventurers find their way since ancient times. Today, it becomes the emblem of contemporary eagles capable of choosing the right direction in the pursuit of their destiny, an invitation to explore the majesty of the natural world that surrounds us.
The Alpine Eagle collection features three automatic movements, all developed exclusively in Chopard's watchmaking workshops and chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute - a rarity amongst watches in this category.
A timepiece that is as unique as this must be crafted from materials that reflect its iconic status. Developed exclusively for the Alpine Eagle, Chopard presents the Lucent Steel A223.
Four years of tireless research have given birth to a quality of metal that is just as precious as gold with the superior functionality of steel.
Developed by Chopard and its partner Voestalpine Böhler, Lucent Steel A223 is a metal like no other. REACH-certified and produced with an ethical approach, this unique and precious metal is the product of four years of tireless research.. Special care was taken in order to ensure that the material used to craft the Alpine Eagle was not only beautiful but extremely high-performance. Uniquely durable, Chopard Lucent Steel A223 is 50% harder than other steels. It is also antiallergenic, making it comparable in quality to surgical steel. But all this function would be nothing without form. Chopard Lucent Steel A223 is perhaps most prized for its signature lucent quality that gives the metal an ethereal incandescence.
Entirely developed, produced and assembled at the Chopard watchmaking workshops, the Chopard 09.01-C caliber is a self-wound mechanical movement with a frequency of 25,200 alternations per hour. With a 42-hour power reserve, it displays the hours and minutes with the precision and elegance that characterize Chopard.
